Join us from March 6 through March 8 for our 9th annual Weekend Away as we explore Gradients, Fades, and Transitionswith Gwen Bortner!
Gradients, fades and transitions – different names for yarns and kits that create a similar look – beautiful fabric moving through a range of colors. What might come as a surprise is you can create your own transitional fabric, in your own choice of colors with minimal stress and maximum success. The secret is understanding a few “formulas” for combining yarns and a couple of simple guidelines for selecting colors. And the best news is that the knitting is easy! Think stockinette, seed stitch, moss stitch, or garter. Come for a relaxing weekend of knitting as we explore all things gradient.
We will begin by playing with color and discussing the advantages of working with multiple strands of very fine yarns to create a dynamic fabric. Next we will discuss some of the tricks and a few “no-fail” formulas for moving from one color to the next. All the while we will be creating a one-of-a-kind cowl (or scarf) in your own personally designed, signature gradient fabric. Join the fun and see all the fabulous options that are waiting when you take control of your own gradient!
As a bonus, all the yarn you’ll need for the class is included! In addition, you’ll receive a 20% discount on all non-sale items you purchase that weekend.
